1 Product Brief NetApp Optimizes SharePoint Implementations Date: March 2011 Author: Brian Babineau, Senior Analyst Abstract: A few years ago, NetApp introduced its first integrated storage and data management solutions for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server to facilitate storage management and data protection functions for Microsoft s rapidly growing collaboration and content management platform. NetApp s current storage solutions for SharePoint, including NetApp SnapManager 6.0 for SharePoint, do more than just support the now widely-used and rapidly growing Microsoft offering they optimize implementations to reduce capital and operating costs while improving scalability and data availability. Overview In early 2009, ESG surveyed nearly 1,200 organizations to better understand their plans to leverage Microsoft SharePoint. Two major themes became apparent: first, most respondents were just beginning to understand the potential of the fastest growing application in Microsoft s history. Second, nearly everyone knew it was going to have a major impact over 80% of respondents that had started or were planning on using SharePoint said that implementations would be a top ten IT initiative over the next two years. Those 24 months passed very quickly and SharePoint has lived up to its billing: for many, it is an extension of Microsoft Office deployments, a real-time content management and workflow automation system and a web platform (intranet, extranet, portal, etc.) that includes social media capabilities. Without question, SharePoint is a powerful platform that can be used to help address a wide range of collaboration and information sharing needs. No matter how it is used, SharePoint is frequently the source, and ultimate repository, of critical information. This, along with ongoing new implementations and growth of existing deployments, makes the underlying storage environments extremely important. Storage cannot and should not be a basic IT infrastructure element supporting SharePoint it needs to help IT departments cost effectively enable and optimize this powerful platform. Organizations need a storage solution that can add the most value to their SharePoint environments. In a 2009 white paper, ESG discussed some of the key considerations organizations need to be aware of when making a SharePoint storage decision and presented the case as to why NetApp solutions should be part of the evaluation process. 1 The latter was supported by NetApp s ability to scale performance and provision in real-time as SharePoint farms grow in capacity and integrated data protection offerings that enable IT to create a rapid, consistent point-in-time snapshot of the entire SharePoint infrastructure (content databases, web front-end servers, etc.) to facilitate fast backup and restore processes. While SharePoint still continues to grow and must be adequately protected, its use has rapidly evolved as have NetApp s capabilities to enable it. Current market trends are creating the need for even more functional storage to optimize SharePoint environments; NetApp has a variety of offerings that make potential improvements a reality. What s New SharePoint Market Trends Capacity Growth ESG research suggests that the average SharePoint user was experiencing annual growth of 25%, with 40% of organizations reporting greater than 1 TB of data in their farms. Keeping in mind that a majority of these deployments were still relatively new (less than three years in production), these statistics were merely a baseline poised to increase as more users began taking advantage of SharePoint s capabilities. 1 See: ESG White Paper, Deploying Microsoft SharePoint Server with NetApp Networked Storage, 2009.

2 Product Brief: NetApp Optimizes SharePoint Implementations 2 As a forewarning to expected usage increase and subsequent capacity growth, Microsoft issued best practices for sizing a SharePoint 2007 content database. The recommendation was to keep this SQL Server component to 100 GB or less to prevent performance degradation and ensure backups could be successfully completed. Microsoft then introduced External Blob Storage (EBS) to help users store data outside of SQL server without compromising access or performance. In such a deployment, a document saved within SharePoint is stored in a file system while the document s metadata resides in the content database. Alternatively, IT could continue deploying new content databases when approaching the 100 GB threshold to avoid the inevitable performance and data protection issues resulting from rapid growth. 2 In summary, less than 24 months ago, SharePoint was new to many organizations, but most, including Microsoft, knew that it was going to be a cornerstone of productivity. As a result, it was going to create the same IT operational challenges specifically rising storage costs, poor performance, and elongated backup and recovery times that any fast growing application does. And Microsoft provided forewarning and configuration suggestions to address the issues. SharePoint 2010 Adoption The biggest driver of capacity growth was the extension of SharePoint to more users who leverage it for more functions. This is being accelerated by the adoption of SharePoint 2010; the latest release more tightly integrates with Microsoft Office 2010, making it is easier to publish content directly to a site. It also includes user interface, collaboration, workflow engine, and social media enhancements that make it much easier to design sites for internal and external use as well leverage the platform for more critical business process automation functions. Once again, Microsoft is predicting (and ESG strongly believes that this will prove to be accurate) that the feature/function richness of SharePoint will create a massive usage increase and thus a(nother) capacity explosion. To combat this, Microsoft made some architectural changes to improve SharePoint s scalability. However, Microsoft is also recommending that SharePoint 2010 users limit their content database size to 200 GB for performance and data protection reasons. 3 The good news is that Microsoft also made it easier to store documents or binary large objects (BLOBs) outside of the content database by introducing Remote Blob Storage (RBS). New to SharePoint 2010 and SQL 2008 R2, RBS differs from EBS in that RBS can utilize FILESTREAM, a mechanism that will automatically store the BLOBs outside of SQL Server in a predetermined, local file system that is still part of the SharePoint environment. RBS also offers integration points so that an external solution (storage system, content management system, etc.) can execute BLOB storage using its own file system rather than FILESTREAM in this implementation, BLOBs are stored and managed outside of the SharePoint environment. When selecting an RBS deployment option, SharePoint users have to consider how easy the implementation is to manage and the potential benefits an external (non-sharepoint) system brings to the overall implementation. Whether a customer uses FILESTREAM or an external vendor s RBS integration, the BLOBs are still accessible from a SharePoint interface and the SQL Server content database remains small, allowing it to deliver the necessary performance and still be quickly backed up. RBS deployments using an external solution as opposed to FILESTREAM are likely to boost performance because the BLOBs are actually saved outside of the SharePoint environment. The introduction of SharePoint 2010 did not really solve many of the capacity challenges users face, it merely shifted them. IT departments should expect to store data outside of the content database potentially outside of the SharePoint infrastructure or have several large content databases to manage across their farms. Both options introduce storage management and data protection concerns. Maximizing the Investment As organizations begin to standardize on SharePoint 2010, they have an interesting information management decision to make regarding legacy data. There are terabytes upon terabytes of file share data sitting inside of organizations; this information, or a subset of it, would likely better serve the company if it were migrated into a specific SharePoint site where it can be managed alongside new content. Another likely scenario involves the desire to move from an existing

3 Product Brief: NetApp Optimizes SharePoint Implementations 3 content management system to SharePoint. This type of migration becomes even more difficult as the documents in a legacy repository are likely stored with security permissions that limit information access. ESG has spoken with several organizations that are grappling with two big SharePoint migration challenges. The first is identifying what data to move and the second is how to get large quantities of data with select metadata (access controls, etc.) from the source to the appropriate SharePoint site. Keep in mind that once these challenges are addressed, SharePoint implementations quickly become much larger, introducing the capacity concerns discussed previously. NetApp Addresses SharePoint Challenges A Strong Foundation Although it is frequently discussed as a single application, SharePoint is composed of several different tiers of components each of which can be optimized when deployed on the right storage solution. Block-based storage protocols, including iscsi, are ideal for SharePoint s SQL Server content database while Common Internet File System (CIFS), a file-based protocol, can be used to store BLOBs outside of the content database as well as the web front-end and index servers. iscsi is optimal for databases because it is a block-based protocol that provides predictable latency and response times for frequent read/write transactions. CIFS (also known as Server Message Block or SMB) is more tuned to handle file-based data such as BLOBs and index files that need reasonable performance the predictability of that performance is far less critical. Both iscsi and CIFS utilized standard IP networking, allowing IT to leverage an existing infrastructure to optimally configure a SharePoint storage infrastructure. Many IT departments will forgo deploying different storage system configurations because they do not want to manage disparate solutions for their SharePoint environments. With NetApp, this is not a concern because all of their FAS and V- Series systems support all protocols, allowing customers to consolidate multiple SharePoint components on a single device or run each independently. Regardless of what a customer chooses to do, with NetApp underpinning SharePoint, they will be running a storage solution(s) that has the same operating system and file system and supports all of the same solution provider s data management and protection software. Aside from NetApp s unified architecture and integrated software offerings, the storage systems have many other capabilities such as thin provisioning, deduplication, compression, and space-efficient writeable clones that will improve capacity utilization, facilitate storage workflows such as creating test and development environments, and help customers control SharePoint related data growth. Users also have several hardware configuration options including the use of different disk drive types and flash technologies to maximize performance at the lowest possible cost. These choices provide the flexibility to balance storage costs with SharePoint-specific performance service levels. All of the aforementioned capabilities can be used across any application environment, with some having more of an impact on SharePoint specifically. However, they should be weighted heavily when customers are selecting which RBS implementation option to use. They may be enough to encourage SharePoint users to use NetApp for BLOB storage. But, for those that still want to compare NetApp s BLOB storage capabilities with FILESTREAM, this comparison is likely to still lead to using a more functional storage system because even though it is part of the core SharePoint environment, it has some limitations. Many of its shortcomings are centered on configuration and the ability to manage BLOBs once they are stored. As an example, FILESTREAM does not have its own dedicated administrative user interface to configure the RBS deployment whereas NetApp does. NetApp s interface also facilitates garbage collection and configuration modifications from its management user interface. And, NetApp offers several storage efficiency benefits such as tiered deployments, compression, and policy-based archival none of which are available in FILESTREAM. The Basics are Covered One benefit of using NetApp s SnapManager for SharePoint (SMSP) is the ability to instantly create a consistent point-intime snapshot of the entire SharePoint infrastructure. Speed is critical so the snapshot process does not impact the availability of the application and the consistent feature means that recoveries are going to be usable because all of the SharePoint infrastructure components (content database, BLOB data, search servers, web front-end servers, etc.) are in synch at that specific point in time. It is important to note that SMSP 5.0 now supports SharePoint 2007 EBS and

4 Product Brief: NetApp Optimizes SharePoint Implementations 4 that SMSP 6.0, the most recent version of the solution, carries this capability forward and adds support for SharePoint 2010 RBS. No matter how or where BLOBS are stored, NetApp SMSP 6.0 can protect and manage them along with the content database to ensure fast recoveries. Data Protection and Recovery Options One of the unique capabilities of NetApp s SMSP 6.0 is that it expedites backups and restores. The former gets the most attention as IT departments just want to get their backups done within an allotted window, but when something does go wrong, it becomes obvious that restoring an entire SharePoint farm can take a long time; this will not improve as the farm components (web front-end servers, index servers, and content databases) grow. SMSP 6.0 maintains a complete index of all SharePoint objects and individual items that have been backed up via NetApp s SnapShot (or replicated using NetApp s Snap Mirror or Snap Vault) capabilities. IT can navigate all of the backup sets within SMSP and select the particular item they want to restore and complete the process from one console. This level of recovery can be performed against sites, sub-sites, site collections, lists, document libraries, and other items. If an entire farm needs to be restored, this can also be accomplished via SMSP 6.0. Item-level recovery enables SharePoint users to get their data back without having to wait for an entire farm to be restored. When required, though, NetApp eases the pain for farm-level recoveries because its snapshots are much smaller than full copies and, as mentioned, the process is centrally managed and executed, ensuring that the snapshot is consistent across all farm components. SMSP 6.0 can now also protect SharePoint web parts, which are connections to other applications or data sources. With many organizations managing multiple SharePoint sites some of which are test sites that will replace current ones in production because new capabilities have been added consolidation efforts are necessary. IT can actually leverage SMSP 6.0 to drive that consolidation during the backup process. The first step is to snapshot all of the sites from various farms (test, development, pre-production) and then restore the individual items (sites, collections, list, etc.) to a different (new or pre-existing) farm. The target farm essentially takes the items from the other sites, adding them to existing information to create the desired production SharePoint implementation. This entire process is made possible and streamlined because NetApp facilitates the instant snapshots and the item-level restores to different (than the original source) SharePoint farms. Running SharePoint in Virtualized Server Environments SharePoint 2010 is an ideal application to run in virtualized server environments because of its multi-component architecture, and it is likely that many IT departments will consider Microsoft s Hyper-V solution since it is part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system. Virtualization using Hyper-V offers great benefits, but some of the capabilities, including Live Migration (which moves virtual machines and the applications running on them between physical servers), only work with networked (SAN, NAS, iscsi) storage deployments. This presents an obvious opportunity to leverage NetApp s storage solutions. Users should also keep in mind that NetApp s SnapManager family includes offerings that can protect the underlying hypervisor without impacting performance of access when this operation is executed. Overall, NetApp s unified, networked storage and SnapManager solution family make it easy to protect SharePoint implementations, giving IT the option to optimize application deployments across a combination of physical and virtualized server environments without complicating data protection operations. Optimizing Performance To help customers manage and control the size of SharePoint content databases, NetApp has extended the Snap Manager for SharePoint 6.0 solution to include: The Archiver Module. In this configuration, a SharePoint administrator defines content archival policies for documents, lists, libraries, sites, etc. and a schedule to apply the archival policy (i.e., when it is run) within the SMSP console. The administrator also designates a CIFS/SMB share location on a NetApp storage system where the BLOBs will be stored after the archive process is run. At the scheduled time, the SMSP system

5 Product Brief: NetApp Optimizes SharePoint Implementations 5 scans a SharePoint farm, seeking items that trigger the archive policy. If an item does, the archiver agent extracts the content from the content database and stores it on the NetApp CIFS/SMB share, leaving the necessary metadata in the content database to ensure seamless access. The Extender Module. This implementation extends the archive process described above and applies it to any new content uploaded to SharePoint. Each time a user uploads content into SharePoint, it is checked against the pre-defined extender policy. If the policy is triggered, the upload process is split with the metadata being stored in the content database and the BLOB saved on the NetApp CIFS/SMB share. These modules help control the size of a SharePoint content database without compromising access. EBS and RBS integration ensures that the content can still be accessed from SharePoint and all of the metadata within the content database is updated as users interact with and modify files. The net result is a much leaner, more scalable SharePoint farm without having to manage a large number of small content databases. Getting Data into SharePoint SMSP 6.0 includes several migration agents that enable SharePoint administrators to identify and import unstructured data, stored on existing file servers or legacy content management systems (Exchange Public Folders, EMC Documentum eroom, Lotus Notes, and other websites), into SharePoint farms. This process can be scheduled and centrally managed during off-peak hours and leverages the same backup and restore process as the SharePoint site consolidation method described above. First, the existing file shares and content management systems from which data has to be migrated must be on NetApp storage or a non-netapp system front-ended by a NetApp V-Series (preserving legacy storage investments). Second, NetApp takes a snapshot of these environments, capturing existing metadata including security permissions. Lastly, the snapshot is restored to a new or existing SharePoint farm. The Bigger Truth It is easy to understand how NetApp addresses many emerging challenges migration, availability, and performance optimization that SharePoint creates while enabling users to actually use the application for greater benefit. What is not so obvious is that NetApp does this with a single product, SnapManager 6.0 for SharePoint, which runs across any NetApp networked storage system regardless of the configuration (disk drives, protocol, etc.) the devices ship with. Users can also take advantage of SMSP (as well as any other NetApp software capabilities) with non-netapp storage systems by deploying a NetApp V-Series in front of those heterogeneous devices. What s more, this writing did not cover some of the disaster recovery and other data protection configuration options customers have when using NetApp (or third-party via V-Series) storage with SnapManager for SharePoint. With its Web-based GUI management console, SnapManager enables administrators to configure and control SharePoint application archiving, data protection policies, and migrations from a single location. Yes, customers have to deploy SharePoint on NetApp storage or a non-netapp system front-ended by a NetApp V-Series to achieve these benefits; however, the investment is well worth it because customers can actually maintain application performance, complete backup and restores (when needed), and seamlessly move data in SharePoint All trademark names are property of their respective companies.
